Commenting upon the UPI awareness initiative Praveena Rai, COO, NPCI said, “We are pleased to partner with SBI to strengthen the digital payments ecosystem by promoting UPI awareness among YONO users. Customers just need to know their UPI ID and use it so they can enjoy the convenience of making or receiving payment from their YONO app to any other bank or payment app. With this campaign, we aim to witness increasing numbers of UPI users which is a step further towards a less-cash economy. We at NPCI have always been promoting UPI among customers via multiple campaigns so that they have a hassle-free and cashless shopping experience with just a smartphone in their hands.”
